GSO re-mapped

Traditional maps—often considered empirical and objective—fail to capture the relationships and stories of people who live within their boundaries. storyscapes responds by re-mapping downtown Greensboro to reflect the multiple experiences and contrasting perspectives of our landscape.

The storyscapes storytellers use their stories as a way to define themselves in relation to the world. These stories allow us to connect to the experiences of others. These place-based narratives will be displayed at the locations where they occurred—punctuating downtown Greensboro with poetry and prose and visual images. Locations for the stories include Central Library, the IRC, the Depot, bridges and street corners.

An illustrated, self-guided map invites participants to meander through the storyscapes—store windows, sidewalks, and other nooks and crannies—where the stories are displayed.
